Many times, you may want to set up Sisense or upgrade Sisense in a development environment before migrating it to your production environment. In a development environment, you can test and verify your dashboard behavior and data accuracy before publishing dashboards to a production environment.
Additionally, if you are using plugins, you will need to replace the Plugins folder with your current plugins located at C:\Program Files\Sisense\app\plugins.
Backing up your installation is recommended before a migration process, but also on a regular basis for securing your data and Sisense configurations.
Note: The original server and the target servers that Sisense is being migrated must be running the same version of Sisense.
